TQWNICR....

Friday the calendar told me it was the day to pack a stitchy bag and wander up to Castlemaine for our regular(ish) 6-12 gathering...yay!...well I had one of "those" Fridays and there wasn't a whole lot of time to pack my stitchy stuff before my ride arrived - usually I drive, out of choice, but my co-pilot offered and I was happy to accept on this occasion to just sit and be the passenger. Knowing that said co-pilot is very prompt and not waiting to keep her waiting I abandoned my usual dithering about what to take and quickly packed the projects that were already out on the table...the hexie quilt top and the appliqued but not yet embroidered Some Kind of Wonderful blocks...both hand stitching, I'm not keen on carting my machine around...

Well...are you sitting down...this is rather amazing...after all this is a Summer School quilt...from this year!..tah dah!...the top is a done deal...


I had the two side borders left to stitch on and I was convinced I'd do the seam to extend one border piece, stitch that on, get bored and move on to the stitchery...but no...I finished the first side and moved straight on to the second...finishing right on pack up time...I didn't even wander the shop drooling over the new fabrics I was so keen to get the second border finished!

It looks a bit "wavy" in the photo but that is just because I had to hang it from the architrave to get the picture. So there we have it, TQWNICR (the quilt whose name I can't remember) is a finished top...yay!...

Happy Stitching...

So you've been a little obsessed with those hexies and they look magnificent there with their pretty green border. Perfect for a garden.

Still obsessed?

Enjoy whatever you stitch next.
